Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins Review


I have to admit, I was very skeptical of this movie, if only because the trailer is so vague. Unlike most films that have trailers showing plenty of laughs, the one for this movie shows very little. That had me more than a little worried going to see it on Wednesday night.

 

Fortunately, my fears were for naught, as this was one very funny movie. In the spirit of Parenthood, Welcome Home Roscoe Jenkins focuses on the characters in one’s family. RJ Stevens (Martin Lawrence) is a talk show sensation with a best-selling self help book. His beautiful fiancée just won Survivor too. His life is what dreams are made of.

 

He heads home for his parents 50th wedding anniversary, and there he realizes that back home in Georgia, he is still just Roscoe, the little boy who never won at anything growing up. His siblings give him no respect and his childhood rival still looks at him as a lesser man. He seizes on this to show everyone that he is all grown up and no longer the scrawny kid everyone made fun of. Of course, all sorts of problems and insanity arises.

 

The laughs come fast and furious in this one, and Lawrence is at his best in a long time. Supported by an excellent cast, the film is very funny and quite entertaining.
